My pop has done so many incredible things in his life. He fought in Vietnam and saved his best friend from dying by carrying him through the jungle for two days. After Grandma died though he seemed really lost. Not only did he lose the person who made sure he took all of his medicines and ate his dinner, but when Grandma went he also lost his best friend. I can't be there to help him all the time so I have organised a carer to stop in and make sure that he is eating his meals and keeping his spirits up. This blog is about the challenges of caring for an elderly loved one when you can't be there yourself.
